Hospital’s Joint Replacement Program Achieves Re-Certification
Shasta Regional Medical Center’s Joint Replacement Program received its re-certification as an Internal Organization for Standardization (ISO) program. The program originally became certified by this international registry in 2003.

“The Joint Care Program is home to all the hospital functions that deal with joint patients, from pre-hospital education through surgery to discharge,” explains Katherine O’Neil, RPT, Director of Orthopedics/Neurological Services. “We offer partial and total knee, hip and shoulder replacement.”

Being certified as an ISO 9001:2000 program means the Hospital has met a stringent set of quality management standards. “For physicians and the Hospital, this approval indicates that we have a system in place for high-quality patient care,” O’Neil says. “For patients who are considering coming to us for their joint replacement surgery, our certification offers another sign of our organization’s commitment to quality care.”
